Ultimate Macaroni Salad

Ultimate Macaroni Salad

1 lb. elbow macaroni (I used medium shells), cooked al dente
2 stalks celery, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1/4 cup scallions, diced
1/4 of a red onion, chopped
1/4 cup shredded carrots
4 hard cooked eggs, chopped
1 cup cooked bacon or ham, chopped
1/2 cup diced cucumber

2 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 Tbsp. mustard
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. sugar
salt & pepper, to taste

Cool the macaroni in the refridgerator. Add all the salad ingredients and stir gently.
Whisk together all the dressing ingrediants.
Now, mix the dressing in with the macaroni. Chill until ready to serve.

I served this with copycat Popeye's Chicken Tenders and copycat Arby's Sauce for dipping.
